Out To Work

Going out of the house for work 3 days a week has really changed the clothes I've bought in the last couple of months.  I'm often hunkered down on the floor or covered in some project's mess (see here), so I've been trying to find that balance of comfy and functional while still feeling proud of what I'm wearing.  Plus, there's probably a chance that I used to get dressed for the day a lot less when I was just sewing at home.  ;))  Here's something I wore to work last week:
Sweater: c/o Emerging Thoughts;  Shorts (they look like a skirt, right?), Tights, and Shoes: ModCloth;  Scarf: vintage  (See how I also styled the shorts here and the shoes here.)

I typically wear clothes that I wouldn't mind seeing a paint splotch on here or there, but if I'm being totally honest, I probably would have been extra sad to see this sweater get messy.  I love it.  Sometimes you just have to be extra careful.  ;)

  6. You look so cute and comfy at the same time. I'd be sad if I got something on a cute sweater like that too! The shorts that look like a skirt are amazing too. Such a pretty color.

  13. Super cute outfit. How is your homeschool schedule going, now that your a working mamma? I'm fortunate to have a great mother in law to be my substitute teacher for the 2 days a week that I work. It's a lot of work right? But well worth it.
